For all that tonight was a cracking experience, god it was intense. To sit at Bocca Di Lupo's Chef's Counter is to sit so close to the trattoria's beating heart that it possesses you of a real instinct to snap to it every time a new order comes on. Which isn't to say you shouldn't make a deliberate point of ...
Might be the place that turned me onto tapas. The space is nice - try to sit on the main floor, not downstairs - and the food is simple, straight forward with good variety. It's close to the office and is also a great place for a glass of wine and a bite before a full dinner.
